Dendrimers and nanomedicine: multivalency in action

Author affiliations

Abstract

What is the contribution of dendrimers to the field of nanomedicine? Rather than disclosing an exhaustive catalogue of their possible applications, this review article sets a putative answer by showing the basics and the underlying concepts that make dendrimeric systems so attractive to nanomedicine, emphasizing on the extraordinary possibilities offered by their multivalent and defined structure.
